Aeration is the breaking down of the soil to provide space for air, water and nutrients to reach deep in the soil to the roots. This process will aid in helping your roots grow deeper in the soil and have longer, wider and stronger grass blades. Having deeper roots helps the grass fight minor grub worm issue and tolerate more stress from drought because the roots are reaching deeper to find the water supply.
A common component of lawn restoration is mechanical aeration which is the process of using a mechanical machine called an aerator to ride on or walk behind to pull plugs of dirty out of the lawn. This creates holes every 3-6 inches ranging from 2-4 inches deep depending on lawn conditions. Once those plugs are established, water, air and nutrients are able to penetrate deep into the soil. The plugs that are laying on top of the ground are then broken by rain or irrigation and returned into the soil. This is done in the fall and at this time you will over seed your lawn to repair any damage done by fungus, grubs, summer heat stress etc.
Liquid Aeration is also a highly effective method that causes less stress to the turf, travels deeper in the soil because of its form and leaves no plugs of dirt on the surface. Our liquid aeration is designed to break up and loosen topsoil and encourage deeper rooting to drive more oxygen into the topsoil profile. By utilizing key bio-stimulants and highly oxidizing material at the key growth stages, this liquid product will give the breakthrough you’ve been looking for in the health of your lawn. This method of aeration also allows for complete coverage of the lawn and can be done anytime during the growing season. These factors give liquid aeration the edge over mechanical aeration.
